About a year ago, while my husband tried to work out a way to save the education system (NZEI conference) Stan and I spent 3 BLISSFUL days in Rotorua sleeping, wandering aimlessly and op shopping. It was Absolutely brilliant.
We're doing it again in a week's time! (which was what inspired this post!)
Firstly a shout out to a blog called Rotorua Travel Secrets for the opshops info! I didn't necessarily agree with her/his opinions about the best op shops (that's subjective of course) but it was SOOOO good to have the heads up about where to find them all!
Nice little church one in the city centre.
|Also in the city centre.|
That's Stan, as he was. He's a year older and bigger now obviously!
|This was a little beauty, with the friendliest, loveliest staff.|
This was next to nothing.
A bit more than I like to pay (coz I'm a cheaparse) but I couldn't resist these from the Habitat for Humanity store.
My basketry obsession continues.
|Makes weighing oneself a little more pleasant.|
Old toys are best. Actually.
|Cute bags of cheap Christmas kitsch stuff. #stash|
|Clothes, linen, fabric obviously.|
|A different colourway of this pattern to what I already have. Score.|
|I obviously had to get this, because of the Irises. (and because I ALWAYS buy these if I see them and they're a good price!) #collectALLthethings|
|Cute winking dog.|
Look out Rotorua - I'm coming at you again!
